There is a patch to jackd that I think was posted to the jackit
mailinglist that adds MIDI ports to the ALSA driver for all available
hardware ports. I hope it will get included eventually, it's a bit silly
to have a MIDI patching system that can't talk to hardware ports without
using another MIDI patching system.
